The goal of abolishing the white race is on its face so desirable that some may find it hard to believe that it could incur any opposition other than from committed white supremacists. — Noel Ignatiev, author, 2002, Harvard Magazine
In 1900, the total percentage of whites in the US was 87.9%. In 1940, the total percentage of whites was 80%. By 2020 it was 61%.
On Monday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo gently pushed back on changing American demographics in one of his final Tweets before leaving office.
From Business Insider, Jan. 20:
“Woke-ism, multiculturalism, all the -isms — they’re not who America is. They distort our glorious founding and what this country is all about. Our enemies stoke these divisions because they know they make us weaker,” Pompeo said in a tweet.
Republican Congressman Dan Crenshaw Re-Tweeted Pompeo. As Fox News reports, Crenshaw got into a spat with the NY Times over their attacks on Pompeo.
Crenshaw continued: “NYT needs to stop pretending it is anything other than a DNC mouthpiece. And not even a very good one.”
The Texas congressman went on to praise comments Pompeo made at a speech last week during which the secretary of state decried “woke-ism, multiculturalism, all the -isms” as anti-American, sparking outrage among some left-leaning politicians and pundits on Tuesday.
Both Pompeo, a US Navy veteran and Crenshaw, a Navy Seal vet, have come under increasing fire from far left-wing pundits and cable news talking heads, h/t complex.com.
